On Friday evening, Taylor Swift appeared at Stonewall Inn for a surprise performance at a Pride celebration event put on by AEG and Stonewall Inn. Taylor sang "Shake It Off" with Modern Family's Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
The event comes is apart of AEG's pledge to support the Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative (SIGBI), which focuses on developing an LGBTQ+ anti-bias training standard and creating safe spaces. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.
I’m so happy I don’t have to keep this secret any longer. Look who came to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Stonewall at the Stonewall Inn. @taylorswift13, you are a gem. Thank you for everything you do for the LGBTQ community. We ❤️ you! 🌈 https://t.co/ICE2b3arxU— Jesse Tyler Ferguson (@jessetyler) June 15, 2019
